If you’re travelling long-term and want to be able to keep travelling while earning some money so you can stay overseas for longer, this is the post for you. There are a few good ways that you can make money while travelling, and all you need is an internet connection and some spare time.
Here’s how you can make money while long-term travelling:
Know how to code? One great way to make money is to design websites for clients. Often businesses will have terrible websites that are hard to get around and don’t make customers want to stay and purchase their products. That’s where you come in. You’ll create eye-catching and easy-to-use websites, and since it’s freelance work, you can do it from anywhere. Another option is to build the websites yourself and focus on getting traffic to them- that way you can sell affiliates or your own products from the websites.
If you’re a wordsmith (usually English will need to be your native language unless you speak and write it perfectly), you love to write, and you have a talent for making boring subjects interesting, freelance writing could be a great option for you. It can be hard to get started, as a lot of people assume they can write and are willing to work for very low rates, however, if you can build up a portfolio of good work and sell yourself to clients you’ll find that you’ll begin working on referrals.
Be in it to win it
One way to make money that many people forget to think about is to actually win money online. There are some amazing online gambling websites, and whether you love slot machines, you want to practice your poker or blackjack skills, or you like to try out new games as they’re released, you may just win big. While you need to be careful with this one as you can easily find yourself down the rabbit hole financially, it can sometimes be worth it if you consider how many big jackpots are just waiting to be won.
Sell your talents
Have you got something cute or useful that you like to make that has friends and family telling you that you should sell it? Why not turn your hobby into a side stream of income? Consider setting up an Etsy account. All you need is 5 things that you’re ready to sell, and as soon as you’ve proven you’ve got great quality and customer service, you’ll get great reviews, referrals and repeat customers.
This is a good option because you can do it both online and on the ground. There are many online websites that need English teachers, and they’ll hook you up with Skype sessions with their students. Also, if you visit countries like China or Vietnam you can easily find an English job for a few months to make some cash.
